Ironically, my name is Victoria and my nickname is Vicki. Most people spell my name incorrectly, either Vickie or Vicky, but it really doesn’t bother me. I am me regardless of how someone else spells my name. The most unusual spelling I ever saw was Vycki.
I used to get a little annoyed at work when people misspelled my name in an e mail since my address was email@example.com
, and I would wonder why they could spell it correctly in the address line, and then start the e mail with “Hi Vickie..”.
Then I realized that using the auto fill feature for addresses meant they usually only had to type the first two letters or so. I just figured they used the spelling that they were more familiar with. Sometimes, especially at work, people get busy and just don’t think. I never really got the feeling that anyone was purposely misspelling my name just to be passive aggressive.
I did have a phone conversation with one man, though, who thought I was being “hoity-toity” (his words) by providing him with the correct spelling of my name when I gave him my e mail address. He commented that I seemed very particular regarding how my name is spelled. I told him that it really didn’t matter to me how he spelled it, but if he wanted me to actually receive his e mail
then he needed to use the spelling that I provided.
This might be something that you simply have to overlook, if you can.
